Geek Out! New Watchmen Footage!

source: scifi.com

Here is the latest video journal from the set of Watchmen – the superhero film that will make The Dark Knight look like Batman and Robin.

This video takes us into the process of creating Doctor Manhattan. For those of you unfamiliar with the classic comic, he’s the big blue dude.

From what we can see in the video journal, there are some really amazing special effects going on. Thankfully director Zach Snyder isn’t going the 300 route, and is instead filming the majority of the film on actual sets. I think I saw some green screen briefly, but that is probably for the sequence on Mars.

Oh, you don’t know what I’m talking about. I’m sorry … for you! Go and read the Watchmen immediately. It’s one of the greatest books ever written. It’s even been spoofed on The Simpsons!

P.S – If you still needed convincing to check out the video journal, there is some footage of Silk Spectre running around in her incredibly skin-tight outfit. Watch it now, thank me later.

Watchmen opens March 2009, and stars Patrick Wilson, Malin Akerman, Jackie Earle Haley, Matthew Goode, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Carla Gugino, and Billy Crudup.

And just because it’s beautiful, here’s the trailer again:
